“My career in PR began in 2010, first, in retail- representing a well-known auto giant before moving into the charitable sector. I have always enjoyed volunteering and giving back to the community so making the transition was not only easy, it was right for me.” Said, Carissa.
When she’s not busy executing campaign ideas and nourishing our brand, you can find her spending time with her nine-year-old son; Kyden, hiking Wascana Trails, walking her chihuahua or just hanging out with family and friends. Learn more about Carissa in our Staff Spotlight:
